Photonic integration of quantum emitters in 2D materials


The search for an ideal single-photon source has generated significant interest in discovering novel emitters in materials as well as developing new manipulation techniques to gain better control over the emitters’ properties. Quantum emitters in atomically thin 2D materials have proven very attractive with high brightness, operation under ambient conditions, and the ability to be integrated with a wide range of electronic and photonic platforms. In this presentation, I will highlight some of the recent advances in quantum light generation from 2D materials, focusing on hexagonal boron nitride and transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs). I will discuss our efforts in engineering and deterministically creating arrays of tunable quantum emitters in 2D materials, their electrical excitation, and their integration with photonic devices.
